After his company dragged a man off an airplane, United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz lost out on a seat as chairman of United’s board.

Now, he has to go to Congress. Munoz will testify in front of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Tuesday, the committee announced Friday.

Munoz will have to answer questions about the incident, which left doctor David Dao bloodied and battered, in a hearing about improving relationships between airlines and passengers. Munoz will be joined by representatives from other domestic airlines.

Next weeks oversight hearing will give Committee Members an opportunity to get much-needed answers about airline customer service policies and what is being done to improve service for the flying public, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster told ABC News.

Dao reached a settlement with United over the incident, but passengers and customers haven’t forgotten. And it looks like Congress won’t, either.
